12 oz bottle at fridge temp
Pours a deep pretty much opaque red color, somewhat brown. Light tan head that fades to a lasting ring, spotty lace. Some nice tight head is revived from a quick swirl.
Sweet malt with some fruity esters. Earthy aromas with some brown sugar, molasses and toffee. Sweet fruity esters most noticeable however.
A bit more complexity in the taste. Lots of sweet malt and not so much fruity esters as the aroma. Caramel, toffee, molasses, some light brown sugar, plum and grape like dark fruits and dark breads. Just a booziness makes for a nice backbone. Maybe even hints of cocoa.
Kind of a thicker medium to heavy in body, appropriate carbonation.
A pretty solid scotch ale, but it's definatly not one of my favorite styles. But it's an amazing beer barrel aged, crazy how much better it makes it.
